We found a puppy!!

(See update below)

The tall guy was sitting at the computer and I was looking out the window and all of a sudden.  WOOSH!

A little ball of fuzz went running by.

Well, I told the tall guy and he got up and looked and what do you know.  There was a puppy running around outside.  Well, we didn't want it to get in the road, so I told the tall guy he should go get it and see if he could figure out where it lived.

He went and got it, but it didn't have a collar or a tag.  And, being Sunday, all the vets were closed so we couldn't even see if it had a chip.  No, not potato.  I mean one of those things where the vet can tell you where you live if you get lost.

So, to make a long story short, the tall guy took the puppy and walked around the neighborhood and lo-and-behold!  (You just knew this was going to be a lo-and-behold type of story), he went to one house and they said that the puppy belonged to their neighbors who weren't at home right then.  So they took the puppy and said they would make sure he got home when his peoples came back.

So, if you ever get lost, come to our house and the tall guy will make sure you get back home!

UPDATE:  The neighbors came over and brought some cookies to say "Thank you" for bringing home their puppy.  But did I get any?  NO!  Something about chocolate chip cookies not being good for me.  I demand a recount!

UPDATE AFTER THE TALL GUY READ MY PREVIOUS UPDATE:  I did get one half of one of my regular cookies for letting the tall guy know that someone was at the door.  He didn't even hear the doorbell ring because he had his music earmuffs on.  So I guess everybody wins!!

Did you know?

Did you know that there are other things on the Internets other than dog and cat blogs?


It's like the world is turned upside-down!

The tall guy found this one:

I guess it's ok because it does have DOG in it,
but evidently it's something about flying on planes
and taking vacations.

I learned the hard way that
vacations does not have anything to do with
getting shots in your butt.
But that's another story.

So, do your peoples have a
favorite website that they like to read?

Hey, what are you doing? 

You know I was taking a nap, don't you?

You also know that I wake up every morning
WAY earlier that you do right?

Just keep that in mind...

Now You Know!! 

Have you ever wondered what your peoples do
while you take your naps?

Here's what the tall guy does:


No, he doesn't talk to my stuffed toys.
He watches stuff on the computer.
97 hours a day!!

If I didn't have to go out to walk,
I don't think he would move off his HINEY all day!
(and I don't mean Stephen!)

So what do YOUR peoples do while you're asleep?

Did you hear it? 

I'm sitting at home, watching the world 
go by outside my window,
when all of a sudden, I heard the tall guy scream!
Which was kind of odd,
because he was at the store.

Did he scream because of the
piece of the rainbow outside our house? 

Can you guess what he was so excited about?

Give up?

Sunbeam bread.
He was screaming because
he found Sunbeam bread at
our local grocery store.
There were 3 loaves.
Now there are zero loaves.
He bought all 3 of them.

I don't know what he's going to do
with 3 loaves of bread.
Would anyone like some toast?

I'm beginning to think that boy
has a compelsion!

What do you mean 
this post has nothing to do with me? 

This blog is not called
"Daily Dose of Whatever You Want To Talk About?"
now is it?

Timmy fell down the well?
You know that I won't fall for that trick!
Besides, he shouldn't have been
playing there anyway.
I think you're just trying to distract me
so I won't notice that you're not writing about me. 

So, to get to the point.
The tall guy wanted me to ask you something.
He gets emails that say if he does a review
of this or that on the blog,
that he will get a this or that to give away
to, let me see how they put it,
one of your many gracious, intelligent,
amazing readers. 

Normally, he just deletes the emails,
as he figures if you wanted a this or that,
you probably already had one.
But, he just wanted to see what you thought about it.

However, he says that if someone
wants to offer him an all-expense paid trip
to Japan to do a review of dog toys there,
or if they wanted to send him to Scotland
to check out Scottish dog collars,
he would review the HECK of it!
(He actually said "heck".  You can't make this stuff up!)

So, what do you think?
Do you want him to start
advertising stuff so that you could win something?
(He said if he wins a trip to Japan or Scotland,
he would make sure that he gets one to give away too!) 

(P.S.  He said to add that he doesn't mind
when bloggers do this on their blog.  He just got an email today and wanted to see what you think.)

(P.P.S.  To the Scotland/Japan people giving away trips:
He has my permission to go.
And remember,
he'd review the HECK out of it!)

For Your Dining Enjoyment! 

You may recall the other day when I mentioned that the tall guy was going to make a potato chip sandwich.  Or you may not.  Anyway, someone asked me if that was a real thing.  Frankly, I had never heard of it either, but when you're dealing with the tall guy, there's lots of things he does that I've never heard of.  

I asked him for the recipe on how to make a potato chip sandwich.  I'm surprised he didn't include it in our cook book, but he didn't.  He said it was his very own special family recipe.  Well, I think the special part is right.  He said that special means something, well, special in the south, although he said he never had an aunt who said "Well, isn't that special" like you see on the teevees sometimes when they are making fun of people who live in the south.  I told him he has a tendency to digress when he tells long stories.  He told me he agrees.

So, here's The Tall Guy Very Special Recipe for Potato Chip Sandwiches:

1.  Take two pieces of white bread.  It has to be Sunbeam or it doesn't count.  He said that his family called white bread 'light bread' when he was growing up.  I told him he was digressing again.

Take two pieces of Sunbeam white bread.

2.  Put a bunch of wavy potato chips on top of one of the pieces of bread.  He said it had to be wavy, like Ruffles or Wavy Lays.  He always used Ruffles growing up as Wavy Lays had not stole the idea from Ruffles yet.

3.  Put the other piece of white bread on top of the potato chips, like you are making a sandwich.  

Which you are.

Here is the most important part:

4.  Now you have to smush the two pieces of bread together with your hand.  That way all the potato chips get stuck in the bread and don't fall out when you are eating the sandwich.

And there you have it.  

Oh, and if you're on a diet, you can take one piece of bread and fold it over to make half a sandwich.

The things I learn about the tall guy everyday!!

Our hearts are broken.

Goodbye my buddy.
I will miss you so much.

Well, it turns out that
I may have been mistaken about 
running out of cookies.  It appears that I had
just reached my limit on the number of 
cookies I am allowed to have each day.
Whoever came up with this
completely arbitrary number needs to
be reminded that 3 cookies is not enough
for a growing boy.
Or me.
 But I still want to thank EVERYONE
who offered to send me cookies or help me
find where the tall guy keeps them hidden.

On another note,
look at what came to the house yesterday:

It's a BOX!
And I helped get it open.

More helping.

More more helping.

And look what was inside.
Someone must know how much
I LOVE me some papers!!

And this:


 The tall guy said it was a pin-gwin!
I have never seen no pin-gwins,
not even on the TV.  

It was SO cool.
It even made 2 different sounds. 


Here the tall guy is playing keep-away.
I let him think that he can actually
keep it away from me.
It seems to make him happy.


You would have thought that
he had never seen bread before.
But, he said this was his
favorite kind of bread and that he
couldn't get it where we live.
It must be a very special kind of bread,
1) because he was really excited when
he saw it in the box, and
2) he would not even let me have none.
Not even the piece on the end that nobody eats!

He was so excited he made himself
a hamburger sandwich!

And he didn't even put it on a bun.
He put it on his special bread.
(I did get a little, tiny, itsy-bitsy bit of the hamburger.)

So I have learned some very special stuff today.
1)  Sunbeam bread makes the tall guy
very excited, and
2) there are some very, very nice
people out there who are very kind
to send the tall guy his special bread
(oh, and my treats and toys too!)

The tall guy said to say a special
to Nancy, who sent us the stuff.

So, "THANK YOU, to Nancy, who sent us the stuff!"
(I didn't even know I could talk in BOLD!)

If you come by, we will make you a peanut butter
sandwich on Sunbeam bread,
which is one of our favorites!

Or you can have a
potato chip sandwich!
Now THAT is some fine eating!!
